PERDUE UNVEILS FARMERS.GOV, INTERACTIVE WEBSITE FOR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCERS
(Release No. 0025.18)
(Grand Rapids, MI, February 1, 2018) – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny
Perdue today unveiled Farmers.gov, the new interactive one-stop website for
producers maintained by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Farmers.gov is now live but will have multiple features added over the
coming months to allow agricultural producers to make appointments with
USDA offices, file forms, and apply for USDA programs. The website,
launched at a breakfast hosted by the Michigan Farm Bureau, gathers
together the three agencies that comprise USDA’s Farm Production and
Conservation mission area: the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources
Conservation Service, and the Risk Management Agency.

"NEW FARMERS" WEBSITE & "DISCOVERY TOOL"
This portion of the USDA website was launched in 2015 to bring together
information from across USDA to help people get started in farming. This
includes a "Discovery Tool" to help you connect with USDA programs in your
area that match your farming needs.
